Tornadoes destroy Las Vegas, we got hurricane force winds in the Gulf. We miss 'em both?
What can I say? We were caught off guard.
People are dead because we failed. But from now on, if a dog farts in Duluth, I expect to somebody to know about it!

Average film. Very routine formula film about a disaster.
There a few things going for it, and a few things against it.
Against it are the settings. Too many city shots, with buildings, motor vehicles, people in suits and ties, all that which makes for dull spectacle. There are some very trite situations, the young lady not taken seriously by a trite bespectacled wimp, the fascination with computers, the power plays that bore most people, the predictable outcome of the storm chasing moron.
For it, while the characters at first begin to sink into stereotypes, each one is brought out with at least one saving grace. Not sure if this saves the film, but it does show some semblance of style and intent to keep it from being too silly. We aren't left with too many predictable and trite results, and it still has entertainment value.
